Vacation apartments in Barcelona
Barcelona is one of the largest tourist destinations not only in Europe, but in the world. For a comfortable alternative to hotels, consider choosing short-term apartment rentals in Barcelona that constitute a successful and secure market in Europe.
Rental apartments in Barcelona cost less than hotel rooms of comparable sizes, and yet offer you a real home where you would love to come back after a day out in Barcelona.
You get all the advantages of independent living and working in a rental apartment: you may choose to cook in a fully-equipped kitchen, you may entertain guests in the living room, you have the privacy of your own bedroom. Would you have all that in a hotel? More and more travellers prefer to rent an apartment in Barcelona for these reasons.
If you frequently travel with family or friends, you know how difficult it may be to book adjacent spacious rooms in a hotel. 1-, 2- or 3-bedroom apartments in Barcelona are easy to find. What is more, you pay per apartment, not per guest, which allows you to cut rental costs considerably, and spend quality time together.
Barcelona is a city you would not want to leave and where you would love to come back, but if you are set on more exploring, we also offer apartment, cottage and villa short-term and long-term rentals all over Europe and North America!

Monument a Colom

Looming high above the busy roundabout congested with traffic exiting and entering Las Ramblas, the Monument to Columbus (Monument a Colom in Catalan) is a tall structure with intricate sculptures at the base and with the statue of Columbus himself placed at the top. Columbus points in the direction of the Mediterranean sea or, quite possibly, of his native Genoa. The monument is popular not only among tourists, but also among pigeons who mark their territory right on the modest bronze body of the famed navigator.

The height of the monument, which had been erected for the Universal Exhibition of 1888, tops at 60 meters. There is a tiny elevator inside that anyone can ride up for 3€ and gaze at the surrounding buildings, ports of Barcelona and the rest of the city.

The legend has it that it was in Barcelona in 1492 that Columbus first told European royalties about his voyages, including the discovery of the American continent. In the 19th century Columbus was thought to be a citizen of Barcelona, and a very honourable one at that, and even today some historians are willing to debate the famous explorer's roots.
